Interview Portion: 

During the tryouts, you will participate in an interview with the coach.  This interview will include providing information about yourself and previous cheerleading roles as well as answering questions from us. Please come prepared to answer questions about commitment, time management, responsibility and what you think it means to be a RHIT Cheerleader.  

Appearance for tryouts: 

Please be aware that this is an important aspect of the selection process. It is important to remember that you are trying out for a position in which you will be representing Rose Hulman. You should be "game ready" for tryouts. We ask that you have your hair half up with a bow (preferably white), fitted black tank top, black shorts (such as Soffe) or spandex, and cheer shoes. We are asking that everyone wear a plain tank top or sports bra. Please be tasteful in your selections. "Game ready" appearance also includes make-up, red lipstick and no jewelry. 

Commitment: 

If you are selected to be a member of the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Cheerleading Squad, you will be asked to attend a mandatory uniform fitting and meeting. This meeting will be held on Friday September 1st, 2017 at 4 pm. Please know that as a member of our squad, you are committing to attend practices (two days a week), home games (football, men's basketball, women's basketball), post-season tournaments (if squad participates) and other events as scheduled. Committing to our team not only means attending, but putting forth your best effort in everything we do. Cheerleaders at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology must be excellent athletes. Cheerleading involves physical strength and stamina. Representing the University is a privilege and must be treated as such.
